UNIVERSITY OF NAIROBI
The University considers that in the interest of both the University and members of staff, it is desirable that members of staff on permanent and pensionable terms should be released from their normal duties at intervals during their career to undertake further study.
Who qualifies and when?
Sabbatical leave is granted to members of staff on permanent and pensionable terms only after completion of six years’ continuous service with the University from the date of appointment or since return from Sabbatical Leave or Study Leave or Leave of Absence. The Vice-Chancellor determines when such leave may be taken.
Sabbatical leave shall be granted at the rate of one and a half months for every completed year of service since appointment or return from sabbatical, study leave or leave of absence up to a maximum of nine months in all on full pay.
Applications for sabbatical leave shall set out in detail the course of study proposed, the duration of leave requested and the financial assistance sought. Applications shall be sent to the Vice-Chancellor through the Chairman, the Dean/Director and the Principal, with a copy to the Deputy Vice-Chancellor (A&F).
The Vice-Chancellor may, at his discretion, grant Special Leave for any purpose (e.g. compassionate reasons, attendance at learned conferences) not covered by the categories of leave set out above. In granting such leave, the Vice-Chancellor shall take into account the frequency of such absences by the member of staff and the effect of such absences on his University work.
